For Classroom Teachers of Grades K–8.

Shadow puppetry, with its bold shapes, vivid colors, and dramatic movement, is a highly engaging art form that allows students to express their understanding through visual art, drama, and writing. In this workshop with Daniel Barash, discover how to create and use shadow puppets to explore the causes and effects of historical events, such as the Underground Railroad. Explore shadow puppetry techniques and discover ways students can use shadow puppetry to synthesize historical events through the writing of mini-scenes. You’ll experience how students can create shadow puppets and scenery to dramatically bring their mini-scenes to life behind the screen.
